anyone know if playing a mac version of a game, on a network with a bunch of pc's, will they be able to see each other?
say i have a PC server hosting a soldier of fortune 2 LAN game....and i have like 15 PC's playing on the server, will i be able to join their game with my mac? while playing the mac version of soldiers of fortune 2?
any other good LAN games that can be played on mac? im going to be hosting a LAN party, and i want to show off by owning everyone on a mac while they blab about how great their pc is... buahahaha

alot of games have PC-Mac lan compatability, though a few don't.

Blizzard games are great, 'cause they have both the windows and the mac version on they're disks. Yeah, diablo, warcraft, starcraft all sync perfectly.
